Astraea, the last immortal to live among humans during the Golden Age of Man, is the beloved virgin deity of justice, innocence, purity, and precision. Often referred to as the 'Star Maiden' she represents all that is good in the world and offers a beacon of hope that a new age of innocence will one day return.
With her unique interpretation of the female figure Ottelien Huckin's artwork contemplates what it means to inhabit the 'body' through layered, powerful, sensual, joyful interpretations. Entrenched in a long art historical discourse dictated by ‘the male gaze’, her practice aims to reveal the figure in an autonomous, empowered way through her new found love of traditional craft techniques; drawing, Delft tile and the 17th century art form of Japanning. Astrea; A Golden Dawn is an exhibition to evoke rejuvenation as we enter a new dawn and look forward, with hope, to the future.
